my code is:
Dim path As String = "LDAP://22.214.171.124/CN=Users,DC=firm,DC=domainname,DC=com"
Dim AD As DirectoryEntry = New DirectoryEntry(path)
AD.Username = "domainname\username"
AD.Password = "password"
Dim obj As DirectoryEntry
For Each obj In AD.Children
'Dim replaced As String = FixString(obj.Name.ToString(), "CN=", "")
Dim replaced As String = obj.Name.ToString()
'replaced = FixString(replaced, "\\", "")
